We are the last thing you were looking for
The sharpest needle in a stack of straw
A guilty feeling that won't go away
Three lines of genius in an awful play

We are canaries in your deepest minds
Dying to tell you everything's not fine
You fly the Hindenburg, we'll sneak a match on
How long's it gonna take for you to catch on?

So come on! One day our day will come
That's one thing you can count on
Our day will come
And then the mouse will eat the mountain

We will resign ourselves to tiny pleasures
Like stealing pennies from your plundered treasures
Creating flickers in your constant power
We are the cancer in your concrete towers

We are the thistle in your lion's paw
The silent whistle to your dogs of war
The little pebble in your soldier's shoes
The real story in your so-called news

So come on! One day our day will come
That's one thing you can count on
Our day will come
And then the mouse will eat the mountain
Yeah, that's one thing you can count on

Unarmed and unaligned we're unafraid
To start a garden in the mess you've made
A patch of flowers in some barren soil
Three cups of water in a sea of oil

So come on! One day our day will come
That's one thing you can count on
Our day will come
And then the mouse will eat the mountain
Yeah, that's one thing you can count on
